Editorial Reviews

After a nineteen-year-old male dies on a flight following a raging fever and violent convulsions, CDC epidemiologist Dr. Kayla Martin (Tiffani Thiessen) and her partner Carl Ratner (French Stewart) consider the frightening possibilities—the reality of the bird flu, the probability of a biological attack, or worse, a new virus they can’t control. But by the time the passengers of the flight are filtered into the ward of a local hospital, the infection is already poisoning sections of Los Angeles, unbeknownst to each victim who passes it on. The virus is spreading, and so is the panic and the fear that it can’t be stopped. Also featuring Faye Dunaway and Eric Roberts, Pandemic is now available for the first time on DVD in an extended version with all-new bonus material. Grab Pandemic…time is running out!

You knew it had to be schlock when the chic from Saved By the Bell and French Stewart are slated to play doctors from the CDC. Basically a kid returning on a flight from Australia carries a horrible virus on the plane home and dies. The plane and everyone on it is put into quarantine. One rogue passenger escapes the quarantine and runs around yapping on his cell phone and spreading the virus to a bunch of other people. This in turn causes Los Angeles to be quarantined. There are also some subplots including a drug kingpin prisoner whose crew breaks him out of the quarantine, competing political candidates, and the family drama between agent Vincent Spano, his ex-wife and their son. The fake virus hilariously named "riptide" (in lieu of the fact that the first victim on the plane was a surfer) kills people alot like the avian flu. There were funny elements to this movie. The acting is terrible. It has an "after school special" vibe that is totally laughable. Some of the characters are completely stereotypical and nuts (like the militia guy that keeps b**ching about the government and conspiracy type stuff and riles up a group of his cronies to do something about the whole thing after some people break free from the quarantine). I did find the idea of taking the dead bodies to the hockey rink kind of clever since it was like mass refrigeration. I also think as chocked full o' schlock as the movie was, it did try to get its message out about what might happen if a pandemic exploded. All in all, I watched it for the so bad it's cool to watch reason. Be sure not to miss Tiffany - Amber Thiessen telling a nurse that "panic" is "pandemic" with three missing letters - oooohhh geez - totally funny.

Format: DVD
First my credentials:
I have degrees in chemistry, biomedical engineering, environmental management, combating WMD's, and have worked in the Army's Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear response department for 5 years.

The acting is a bit lacking. There was nothing that made me cringe outright, but if you hire B+ actors, you get a B+ result.
The science of it, however, was very good.
There are some technical aspects to take issue with: The timeline for the disease got sped up, and they mingled people's jobs somewhat (virologists, epidemiologists, pathologists, and emergency management personnel are distinct jobs, but some of the characters tend to blur the lines). The military units did not know how to construct a roadblock/checkpoint.
For the most part, however, the movie does an excellent job in describing the difficult decisions and hurdles that would be faced in such a pandemic, and is good debate fodder for discussions on these issues.

For example:
Is it morally acceptable to shoot civilians attempting to break quarantine?
If you have two antiviral drugs, should you give everyone both in hopes that one will work, or should you give one group drug A and another drug B so that you can learn what works?
How much information should the public be told and when? Where is the line between limiting panic and public disclosure?

There is very little out-of character stupidity in the movie. Yes there are some selfish/paranoid idiots, but I know several people at least as idiotic as anyone in this movie. The technical inaccuracies are not distracting, and can be attributed to simply making the movie appealing to lay people.

If this is an interest of yours (as it is to me), I suggest watching and taking notes on things you need to decide or wish you knew (for instance, how long does an airplane's oxygen mask supply last?) to respond to these types of things.

Format: DVD
It was a very long flight to Oakland (to attend Bioneers), and this movie got me through the last two hours. It is superb. It should be required viewing for every citizen, every official, every foundation leader, every elected person. It is well-crafted, credible, absorbing, and thought-provoking.

Highlights:
* How the selfishness of one "run-away" infected person can kill tens of thousands and defeat the pre-quarantine containment process.
* Failure to control *each* passenger by name in the delicate transition from infected aircraft to controlled environment is the one thing that can destroy a containment.
* Failure to be candid with citizens and put public ran-away notice with photo of the run-away makes the situation much worse. Failure to tell the run-aways office workers and home family the exact threat they represent negates their value in bringing the run-away in before they infect hundreds more directly, thousands indirectly.
* The movie provides a fascination depiction of the scientific investigative process, while also depicting the political tensions among the Mayor, the Governor, and others, each seeking to balance archaic political calculations with unknown biological "runaway train" implications.
* The movie reminds us that a run-away worst impact is among first responders who missed the alerts and begin to die as fast as the people they are treating.
* The utility of ice rinks as emergency morgues for hundreds of bodies.

Overall this is a great movie with a fine plot including a worst case break-out of a convicted drug lord, and what happens when people turn off the radio or silence the witness before they can complete a sentence that begins "it's not so simple.
